The piece: Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel in Vine Green

The investment: $895

Why it's worth it: With the New Year just weeks away, we can't think of a better way to kick off 2013 than with a brand-new bag. Yes, it might just be another excuse to go shopping, but there's no denying the star quality of this gorgeous green Alexander Wang Rocco duffel. With style setters and stars around the world sporting iterations of the Rocco season after season, the sporty-cum-chic silhouette has become a classic in its own right. And now that Wang signed on as Balenciaga's new creative director, we expect the Rocco to be even bigger next year. What's more, the refreshing vine-green hue — we love how it contrasts against the bag's iconic studs at the bottom — is right in line with 2013's color of the year. Thanks to the roomy size and handy two-strap option (it also comes with a shoulder strap), this stunner is perfect for toting around all day, every day. What more convincing do you need?
